Runner Noun


  • A person who runs, especially an athlete

Wedding Wise:

In the most basic terms, an aisle runner is a rug that runs the length of the church aisle (or any other aisle for that matter!). The history behind a runner begins with an old belief that a white aisle runner warded off evil spirits believed to live below the floor. In order to keep the spirits from the bride, a white runner was used to protect her “purity.”

Today, aisle runners are used to keep a bride’s dress from getting dirty.

They are another opportunity for bride’s to customize their wedding and add some high style into the overall decor of the wedding. They are a great statement piece and make for a dramatic entrance for a bridal processional.

Here’s some eyecandy from Customized Wedding Creations. Enjoy!
